He was crushed by hopelessness until one day he surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ. After 16 years in the darkness of prison, God
miraculously touched then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to free Brian.

His message of fresh hope impacts churches, conferences, universities and gatherings nationwide. He resides in Greater Los Angeles, CA with his wife, Laura, and three children, Nathaniel, Sarah and Sofia.
